Quick Reviews: Sherlock Holmes on Screen

Sherlock Holmes on Screen by Alan Barnes

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes has been featured in more films and television programs than any other fictional character. With each adaptation and performance, different aspects of the beloved character are explored, including Holmes’s drug usage and personal relationships. With the these portrayals, it is difficult to keep track of them all. Super-fan Alan Barnes has collated information about his favorite sleuth into a detailed encyclopedia. It features every single Sherlock performance to appear in film and on television. In its third edition, Sherlock Holmes on Screen is an excellent guide to the world’s favorite detective. Fans of Sherlock Holmes will not be disappointed.

Quick Reviews: The Complete Three Stooges

The Complete Three Stooges by Jon Solomon

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Die-hard Three Stooges fans will consider Jon Solomon’s The Complete Three Stooges an invaluable resource. The book contains detailed synopses, production notes, and anecdotes on every single short and feature-length film ever made by The Three Stooges. The book is in chronological order and also contains a detailed index, which comes in handy. Personally I am not a big fan of the Three Stooges, but Solomon’s book is the go-to for everything Three Stooges.
